In Bucks God Trusts

In Bucks God Trusts

A Poem by Seeker

Is cash the new god in person? Read on


God in vision, showed her true face

Nose less, deaf, mouth less, eyes laced

Dollar bill nailed to her forehead

Now god’s a cyclops on a bill head

Reversing divinities, bucks for godhead

Lost sheep worship god as shepherd


Shepherd venerates bucks instead

Who worships who? It may be fairly said

People worship god, god reveres green

Those blessed with wealth ever near it’d seem

To the almighty, her blank checks unseen

At last! God’s tangible, countable and clean


Let all who can, rake in wealth no matter how

Their sole blessing for them to flaunt

Only the blessed will stroke holy cow

And milk it dry, then the poor to taunt

The rest left for poverty to haunt

Sweat hard, live hard, for bucks to hunt


To church, to church, one day’s for church

Forget not to hurl god in your purse

Without god, worship is fruitless

How else could the pastor bless

His flocks damn high on his opium

And live like some king at the podium?
